In today’s competitive markets where it is essential to provide high-quality results in order to cope up with the enormous and ever-growing demand for manufacturing resources, selection of optimal Cloud Manufacturing service provider and efficient service scheduling is the core of achieving high-quality and prompt outcomes. This paper elaborates on the use of recommender system to filter out the best candidate CMfg service provider based on various factors in a distributed model for an easily adaptable framework. This work is probably valuable for future research on the selection criterion of service providers and improving the efficiency of CMfg process as a whole.
